Nobody really wants to be wearing braces in real life. So why would you dream about getting braces, especially if your teeth are fine in the natural? Biblically speaking, this is actually an important dream with significant meaning;

In a dream, teeth represent wisdom and comprehension; the ability to understand and discern things. Dreaming about getting braces is Gods way of saying He is going to help straighten out your ability to understand and discern things, and walk with wisdom.

Different teeth represent different things, read on to learn more about what God might be saying in teeth dreams;

Why did I dream about getting Invisalign braces?

This is indicating that God is going to help straighten out your ability to discern and understand things, however, nobody will know that the process of correction is taking place as God will do this privately with you in the secret place.

Why did I dream that my eye tooth fell out?

Eye teeth are symbolic of spiritual insight and revelatory understanding; basically, the ability to ‘see and understand’.  In a biblical sense, this would be about the ability to discern things spiritually. If you lost an eye tooth in a dream, it would mean that you’re losing the ability to discern and / or recognise important aspects and elements of your life.

Why did I dream that my wisdom tooth fell out?

Wisdom teeth are symbolic of wisdom, and either the ability to walk and operate in wisdom, or the lack of wisdom in your walk. Losing a wisdom tooth in a dream means that you are losing the ability to walk with wisdom.

What does it mean if my teeth are painful, cracked, broken or crumbling in a dream?

A painful, cracked, broken or crumbling tooth in a dream is indicating that you’re losing the ability to operate in wisdom and discernment, and that repair and care is needed in this area.

Why did I dream that my teeth are brown in color and / or are rotting?

Rotting teeth in a dream, again, indicate that you are losing the ability to understand and discern things.

Why did I dream that my tooth was pulled out?

If you dream that someone else pulled your tooth out even though there was no problem with it, it is indicating that the enemy is working hard to get you into a state of confusion, especially about spiritual matters. Do not allow confusion in, God is not a God of confusion. Trust the Holy Spirit inside of you, and the wisdom, insight and discernment that you operate in, which He gave you.

If you dream that someone else pulled a rotten, painful or broken tooth out, to help you with pain management and to correct the tooth problem, it means that God is going to use someone to bring correction and healing to an area that you’ve lost the ability to understand and discern things in.

If you’re pulling out your own healthy teeth in a dream, God is showing you that what you are doing is contrary to operating in wisdom, and you are causing yourself to move backwards and you will, as a result, lose the ability to operate with discernment and wisdom due to your choices.

What does it mean to dream of someone else’s teeth?

This is a prophetic dream, showing you the ability of the person in the dream to operate in wisdom and discernment.

Examples of dreams about other people’s teeth, and what they mean

If you dream that someone looks at you and smiles, and the main focal point of the dream is his or her beautiful white and perfect smile, you’re getting shown that their discernment, wisdom and ability to comprehend things of the spirit – revelatory understanding – is in tact and righteous.

If on the other hand, you dream of someone and instead the smile is one of rotten brown teeth, this is showing you that their understanding of spiritual things is ‘off’ and not righteous at all, and they are likely in need of help to correct their understanding on spiritual matters.

Typically, these dreams are given in order to allow you to pray for the person. If God wants you to do something specifically, such as to approach and speak to the person, He will make this clear. Not all dreams require action such as this, majority of them require private prayer and intercession for the person. The more faithful you are to make the right decision on the action to take when shown these things, the more God will trust you and show you.

What you should do if you dream that your teeth are falling out, are broken, cracked or painful.

By dreaming about losing a tooth, or that you have brown, broken, cracked or painful teeth, God is showing you that there are areas of your life that you’ve lost the ability to understand or discern things and walk with wisdom in.

The first thing you need to do, is pray. Ask God what the problem area is if it is not clear to you, and once you know, ask Him to help you course correct.

God knows everything there is to know about you, and the particular area that you’re struggling with. He will never let us down if we ask for help, and the Bible says in the book of James that He gives wisdom liberally to all those who ask Him for it, without finding fault with the one asking. So don’t be afraid to ‘get real’ with Him. He loves you and is for you, not against you.
